We live an internet driven life. We depend on it for so many things; We find the music we want to hear online. We do our banking online. We communicate with friends, work and learn from the internet. We even play games online, find recipes and do some of our shopping. While it sure makes life easier to be online, as a parent, the digital age presents a new set of challenges.
We can’t ban our kids from going online, and we can’t be there for every second of their online experience. Instead of stressing over the things that a child might run across online, now parents can relax and rest assured that the internet doesn’t have to be such a scary place or a concern when it comes to their kids.
We have been using the CUJO Smart Firewall from Best Buy, this is a complete security solution for the whole family. It brings business level protection to our home. Worries about spam, hackers, and iffy websites are a thing of the past with CUJO. I love that not only can this firewall keep our computers safe, but other devices too!

Setting up the CUJO Smart Firewall was as simple as could be and only took a few minutes. It is super fast with 1 G ethernet built in. The included cable is a generous 3 feet long, to make connecting it your router simple.

The Cujo Firewall is a great system to have for anyone online. I love that it is app controlled, easy to use, and it gives parents peace of mind when it comes to keeping our kids safe online. You can download the app from the Apple Store or Android Play Store.
Retailing at under $250, this is an investment to make in keeping your devices safe and a careful eye on your kids. I love that there is no monthly fee to use the CUJO Firewall system. I would highly recommend this product to other families. It is easy to use, takes a lot of worries away from parents and is a great way to keep an eye on the kids online.
